The Drachenschlucht is a walk to the top of a hill through really narrow gap, partly above water. Due to the high walls on both sides the walk is amazing. The total stretch to the top takes around 50 minutes where the last 20 minutes...More

Nice walk, but not very impressive. As it is humid there, good to apply some insect repellent to keep the horseflies away. I did the round tour starting from Hohe Sonne through the Drachenslucht and back via the Landgrafenschlucht. This is listed as a 3.5...More

This was another highlight of our trip in Eisenach. We had no problem finding a parking spot at the side of the road. Coming from the town, the Drachenschlucht is on the right. Right before the welcome sign “Drachenschlucht” is a small lake covered with...More
